Truly dunno how this happened. WE HAVE A HOUSE!! Just moved key shit in today. Sleepin there with the pup tonight. More moving tomorrow.
We thought we were headed to an apt and were gonna lose all of this. Garden, tiny house, piano, yard, room to ourselves and an awesome property manager who is an organizing comrade. All to get out of a toxic housemate situation.
Dunno how this happened, but so fucking happy. Looking for housing is a horror show. Finding it is a blessing
Anybody in #pdx interested in either buying or being a foster parent for a beautiful 1910 Ludwig upright grand piano. There are a couple aesthetic repairs needed, but it plays beautifully and fiercely holds a tune.
My partner and I are moving in two weeks, so serious inquiries only please. I paid almost $3k for this, but would let it go for $1500 given circumstances.
A first attempt at #minecraft...
Holy shit this game is enjoyable
Unabashed opinions about PDX eateries, food pics, yum Show more
Every time I see a line of 30 hipsters lurking outside Screen Door or Pine State Biscuits or some other pretentious, overrated Portland restaurant, I shake my head and think about hidden gems like Yuan Su Vegetarian
Yuan Su virtues:
* delicious food
* not crowded
* food is 100% vegetarian w/ a plethora of meat substitutes
* suuuuper nice staff
* large variety of dishes
* did I mention it's not crowded?
Show this place some love, #pdx :)
Critical #MastoAdmin cleanup command... I haven't put this in a cron job yet cause I'm lazy, but wanted to remind folks cause god is it clutch... (removes cached media content from remote servers). safe

brrrr, stay warm #pdx!
forecast is looking chilly.
Drive safe y'all!
Okay, #LogBlock is turning out to be pretty damn cool. Added command-line options now so this is actually useful and easy to navigate.
Okay friends of port 70, guardians of the gopher, lovers of plaintext and long form content, the process has begun. I am very new to android dev and this is slow going, but enthusiastic to announce start of a new gopher client project for android.
Want to keep things as simple and elegant as possible, but already having tons of cool ideas about functionality.
For absolutely no critical reason I'm working on a #gopher client / server written with #ruby and #ncurses. There are tons of solid projects out there, but wanted to learn about the protocol and work more with networking / command line UI design.
The emojis are cute as fuck honestly, but I need to figure out how to get ASCII strings to play nicely with UTF-8
Having lots of fun. For those unfamiliar, gopher is the plaintext net w/o the frills and pomp of HTTP - emphasis on content :P
Oof, really wish #Mastodon didn't show a bunch of "filtered" messages with toots filtered. The UI is great for creating filters. Context, etc is very useful granularity.
But the whole point of a filter is to hide stuff. If the UI shows a reminder of all the content ur hiding and clutters up the tl, it defeats so much of the purpose.
If anybody knows if this has been implemented on a fork of the project, but otherwise might take a crack at doing that, cause this seems suboptimal
Maintenance of large software projects, mastodon Show more
Wow, there are so many open issues for Mastodon on github. And so many are super valid.
Hard to imagine managing (or even contributing substantially) to a project so large. Any open source devs have insights about issue management, triage, division of responsibility, etc when there's such an overwhelming amount of engagement / requests?
Thanks to all the fediverse maintainers and admins and mods! This shit is clearly a ton of work
Oh I do love reading a good book by a proper fire.
Cedar is a gorgeous fire starter
Community organizer, computer programmer, unix nerd, anarcho-socialist (#nobot plz)
OrgSpace is a social media instance on the Mastodon network built by, and for, community organizers. We believe social media is a critical tool for political education, relationship building, mobilizing folks; however, facebook, twitter and other mainstream networks have opted time and again for profit and commercializing personal data regardless of the consequences.
Mastodon is a decentralized, but federated network. This means that when you join organizing.social, you get to interact with everyone you choose to on the wider Mastodon network; but you also get to see locally scoped content (from this instance) and help build a network particularly focused on building community and organizing those around us against oppressive systems and towards a society rooted in equity and global justice.
Setting up this instance has been a project of PDX Outreach for Justice, but we want this to be a global network of organizers and welcome moderators, admins, and engineers, and others who would be interested in contributing and shaping this process
